Normal weight gain in pregnancy is 25-35 pounds. This is not all baby! This is extra body fat, extra water, the placenta, your enlarged uterus, amniotic fluid,
extra blood, and the baby. Some women who are underweight when they conceive will gain a little more because the body needs it to maintain the pregnancy. Some
women who are overweight when they conceive will gain less if they are eating healthy. If you stay in the 25-35 pound weight gain, you will likely lose all of it
plus some by breastfeeding your baby!
